The Otter Tail County Board (Front) Lee Rogness District 5, Betty Murphy 4, Doug Huebsch 1, (back) John Lindquist 3, Wayne Johnson 2.

Have you met the commissioner from your county district? Do you have ideas or questions you would like to share with your commissioner? 

Join the Otter Tail County Board, on March 5, as they gather in Perham to hold an official board meeting and provide an opportunity for residents to visit one-on-one with commissioners. The board of commissioners will convene in the afternoon at Perham’s City Hall Council Chambers to conduct the official business of the county. After a break for supper, the commissioners will be available at 6:00 p.m. for a brief open house where residents may publicly address the commissioners. 

Following the open house there will be a meet and greet in which residents may visit one-on-one with their commissioners over cookies and coffee.

 This year the commissioners have committed to hold public board meetings in a variety of locations throughout the county. This schedule will allow for residents to conveniently attend the meetings and share their input. Future opportunities to discuss the long-range strategic planning in Otter Tail County will take place in Perham and Parkers Prairie.  The public is invited to attend open house meetings on March 13 at the Perham Area Community Center (PACC) and on March 14 at the Prairie Event Center.

The county, with input from residents and stakeholders, is working to develop a long-range plan to outline strategies for growth and preservation of our county’s assets and resources. The public meeting will be an open house format allowing for informal discussion, questions, and answers. Please visit the Plan website at for additional information. You are encouraged to attend:
